Parmesan Biscuit and Smoked Salmon Sandwich Recipe


  1. 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup stone-ground cornmeal
    1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    2 ounces (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
    2 cups (5 1/2 ounces) grated Parmesan
    1/2 cup finely chopped green onions
    3/4 cup buttermilk
    1/3 cup olive oil
    1/2 cup Lemon Butter, at room temperature, recipe follows
    3 cups baby arugula
    10 ounces smoked salmon or prosciutto


  1. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
  3. Add the butter. Using fingertips or a pastry blender, work the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles a coarse meal.
  4. Stir in the Parmesan and green onions. Add the buttermilk and olive oil. Stir until the mixture forms a dough.
  5. Drop the dough onto the prepared baking sheet in 12 equal-sized pieces. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes until golden. Cool the biscuits for 10 minutes then transfer to a rack to cool completely.
  6. Slice each biscuit in half and spread the bottom half with 1 teaspoon of lemon butter. Add some arugula leaves and place a small slice of smoked salmon on top. Add the top half of the biscuit and serve.

Makes 12 sandwiches.
